Candle Style Reference
Candle Style refers to the GUI support in Candle Runtime. Candle
Runtime provides complete GUI support that covers GUI layout,
rendering, event cascading and handling. Candle Style module is like a
mini Gecko engine in Mozilla or WebKit in Chrome and Safari.
Candle Style supports a new style markup language, which is a
unification of XHTML, CSS, SVG elements and attributes. A few new tags,
<window/>, <popup/> are added to allow
the GUI to run directly as a windowed program on desktop.
The purpose of this module is for people to develop rich GUI
applications for both Internet and desktop environment, but with one
set of unified markup elements and attributes.
This module is still being developed and currently only runs on
Windows. Porting to Linux is incomplete at the moment.
Backward HTML/XHTML compatibility is also under development.
When this module is more polished, more documentation shall be provided
for you to try it out.
